    "Rising is HOSTILE"

    July 27, 2014   |   By xactly

    Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00.65.34

    Pros

    It's Free.

    Cons

    I am extremely frustrated with Rising:
    1) They install either a probe program or a full program in your PC without you knowing it.
    2) When you try to uninstall it, it puts up all sorts road block to make you uninstall as difficult as possible.
    3) If you persist and then uninstall it, it would leave another probe program in your PC which is just like another virus. It would scare you once in a while that you HAVE to install Rising AVP before you can run certain application!

    In my view it is not only an aggressive and HOSTILE program, it is almost like another virus which has infested your computer.

    Summary

    It is like a cult. Easy to join (often without you knowing it) and hard to get out! For this reason alone I will NEVER use Rising no matter how good their anti-virus functions are. Besides, there ARE LOTS of other AVPs that are not only as good, but better!
